ICSA 2017 @ IEM Graz

I was very lucky this year to attend the ICSA in Graz, Austria, hosted by the VDT and IEM - one of the world's centres of excellence for spatial audio research, both artistically and technically. They also do a lot of great work on open source project such as puredata. As well as attending the conference, I also took part in the summer school (my second summer school this summer!). This was a fantastic experience, and I learnt a lot about High Order Ambisonics. The IEM guys have developed some fantastic techniques and free tools for working with HOA, making mixing in 3D using HOA viable.

When I got back to Huddersfield I did a workshop explaining what I learnt to my colleagues in the music and computing/engineering departments.

Sounds in Space 2017

Video of my slightly disastrous presentation at sounds in space 2017 at Derby university (I had problems with the slides due to technical issues with the audio interface). Binaural audio, so use headphones. More info here and here
